Sathya Sai Baba Mahasamadhi How Old Will He Live And When Will He Die?
Although various critics have attempted to argue that Sathya Sai Baba said he will live to be 96 years old, they cannot reference these claims directly to Sathya Sai Baba himself. Rather, critics reference the “96 year old” claim to various Sai Devotees and Sai-related books.
The “96 year old” claim originated from a Shuka Nadi reading that was widely distributed many years ago and contained various prophecies regarding the Sathya Sai Avatar.
When one looks at Sathya Sai Baba’s actual words, what he is said is quite clear and unmistakable. In two different discourses, Sathya Sai Baba said that he will live until the year 2019. Since Sathya Sai Baba made these claims prior to his birthday celebrations, he will live to be either 92 or 93 years old. Since various critics take issue with Sathya Sai Baba’s actual day of birth, then one can cite the following two discourses where Sathya Sai Baba predicted he will live to the year 2019.
Sathya Sai Speaks, Volume One
Prashaanti Nilayam, September 29th 1960
The miracle is but the natural behavior of the miraculous. That is why I favour you with the experience now and then, so that you may get a glimpse of the Glory. I will be in this mortal human form 59 years more and I shall certainly achieve the purpose of this avathaar; do not doubt it. I will take My own time to carry out My Plan so far as you are concerned. I cannot hurry because you are hurrying.
1960 + 59 years = the year 2019
Sathya Sai Speaks, Volume Two
Prashaanti Nilayam, October 21st 21 1961
You will witness Puttaparthi becoming a Madhura Nagara (birth place of Krishna). No one can stop this development or delay it. I will not give you up, nor can any one of you give Me up. Even if you lose faith, you will repent and come to this refuge very soon, clamouring for admission. I shall be in this body for 58 years more; I have assured you of this already. Your lives are intertwined with My earthly career. Act always in accordance with that great privilege.
1961 + 58 years = the year 2019
Therefore the answer to “how long Sathya Sai Baba said he will live” is: Until the year 2019, when he is either 92 or 93 based on his November 23rd 1926 day of birth.
Amusingly, Sathya Sai Baba has outlived various critic’s claims that he is dying or is about to die since the mid 1990’s. Sathya Sai Baba still looks much younger than his actual age. However, critic’s constant scowling, frowning, glaring and pouting have only added to their already heavily wrinkled faces (many of Sai Baba’s critics are in their 70’s).
